September is quickly approaching, which means we’re about to return to the grind of work and school. Though this may sound daunting, don’t worry- World Cafe Live has some awesome shows to help keep you occupied when you need a break from it all. Next month’s shows offer a diverse range of genres, from classic rock, to jazz, folk, and blues. Take a listen to our Spotify Playlist for September to hear for yourself —
Birdtalker “Heavy” (September 13)
Nashville based indie-folk rock group Birdtalker have a knack for creating poetic lyrics and beautiful harmonies that flow smoothly with the music. “Heavy” is the first song that the group wrote together and recorded, which sparked the composition of the remainder of their 2016 debut EP, Just This. Their charming sound melds the melodic sense of indie rock with the more intimate and quiet sound of acoustic folk music.
Zealyn “Talk: Listen” (September 19)
“Talk: Listen,” from Zealyn’s 2016 album Limbic System, has an alternative electronic sound that is organic and unique. Zealyn, otherwise known as Angie Miller, began her musical career as a contestant on American Idol Season 12. After placing third on the show, she came out with her debut album, Weathered, in 2014. Zealyn will embark on a five week tour around the entire US beginning September 12, and we are incredibly excited to have her play at World Cafe Live.
Philly Music and Arts Fest (September 22-23)
“The Festival is both a testament and celebration of the exploding music scene in Philadelphia and a showcase of up and coming artists”
The Philly music scene is “eclectic and blossoming,” so what better way to celebrate it than have a festival featuring only local bands? In addition to live music, the festival will highlight the food, beer, and arts of Philadelphia. You don’t want to miss it!
Check out some of the artists who will be performing at the show:
Strand of Oaks- “Goshen ‘97”
